This stuff is a must have!
I don't use this on a regular basis, but I really should. Every time I use it, I notice a significant improvement of my skin - it's smoother and it simply feels refreshed!
Ahh, my face really never feels this clean.
I kept hearing so many wonderful things about this mask, so I decided it was time for me to try it for myself!
I have combination skin but with the weather getting colder, it leans more on the drier side. My skin stopped feeling as smooth and soft as it used to, despite gracious amounts of moisturizer and avoiding water that was too hot. I avoided toners with alcohol. I switched cleansers. Nope, my skin was still as dry as ever.
It was for this reason I was nervous about using this mask - it does say on the packaging it's for oilier skin. Aside from a breakout though, I really didn't think my skin could get worse anyway.
It was with that in mind that I slathered this all over my face one night after removing my makeup. It smelled really good - like cool mint, fresh but not too overpowering. It felt really nice on my face as I gently smoothed it across my skin. I applied a consistent, not too thin layer across my face avoiding my eyes and my lips.
I waited 15 minutes before rinsing it. It started feeling kind of tingly and tight and I thought "ugh, maybe this was a bad idea". Whenever I get that tight feeling from products, I know that my skin is going to disagree. The mask had started to dry and turn white. I probably could have left it on longer, but I didn't feel comfortable doing so.
I rinsed it off with lukewarm water and gently patted my face dry. I did notice right away my skin looked like it was glowing, and despite my face feeling a little tight my skin felt smooth underneath my fingertips. What I think I liked the MOST however was that my lotion seemed to absorb into my skin a lot better. It felt heavenly after I put on my moisturizer and eye cream. Some of my blackheads seemed to have disappeared as well.
Overall I really like this product. It's something I'd use once a week or two. Ever since I used it my skin has been noticeably softer and clearer. It's also on the affordable side. I think this might be my skin's best friend this coming winter!
Canadian beauties: you can grab this from Sally's Beauty Supply.
I use this about once a week or once every couple of weeks, and it does a good job of cleaning out my pores and making them appear smaller. I sometimes use it as an overnight spot treatment on breakouts too, but don't often have a problem with that. No need to spend a bunch of money on expensive masques when this cheap one does a fine job!
Packaging is ugly to me but the tube works fine.
I'll tell you one thing: this is a recipe for facial irritation for me. It made my face sting, get dry, and extremely uncomfortable. I will def. not repurchase. I don't have much else to say besides I didn't like it
OMG, so affordable and I love it
I use this on my tzone only. i just love it. the first day i got it however, i applied it on my tzone only, but did also apply some by the nasiolabial folds. I have been using this almost every day and really can't get enough. Can't stress, this is a great masque just don't overdue it
When I spread this on my face and let it dry, my skin feels sort of tight but not in a overly harsh way. I guess it feels...relaxing? Anyway, the feeling it gives after you wash it off is refreshing and you feel clean. It has a mint toothpaste-y smell but what's strange is once I mix it with water to wash it off, the smell of rotten eggs devours my nose. It doesn't stay on but it's also not very pleasant at the moment. It doesn't do anything for reducing pimples but I have seen some improvement on redness. I'd recommend this just for an everyday mask for relaxation.
This did feel incredible on my skin which I was so happy about. After about 8 days using it, I began to break out!! I hadn't changed anything to my face regimine and know this was the culprit. I really loved it because it is inexpensive and felt great but damn, just not for me I guess.
I am not a fan of the packaging so I always steered away from this but when I started to use it, I instantly fell in love.This is SO cheap- like $3 for a big tube! although it burns like hell especially the first time you use it or if you have sensitive skin, your face feels very refreshed and clean afterwards. i recommend this to anyone!
I'm 42 and still have the occasional acne. This stuff is amazing. it's better than any high end product I've ever used. I'm quite liberal on spending money on products but nothing makes me happier than finding a great product for a bargain. This is it!!!!! For the price, you can't beat trying it out. Love it, will repurchase it.
